SAN BRUNO, CALIF. – Walmart.com is providing
free shipping for most CE purchases over $45.
The promotion, which begins last week and runs
through Dec. 19, excludes iPads, freight items, and
products sold by third-party affiliates.
Qualifying purchases will be delivered direct to
customers within three to five business days after processing
via standard shipping. Return shipping is also
complimentary, although online orders may also be returned
at Walmart stores.
“Our customers are stretched for time and dollars
this season and we want to give them incredible shipping
savings on the gifts they want most,” said Joel Anderson, president/CEO of Walmart.com.
Earlier this month Walmart announced free shipping offers
on 100,000 items under its HomeFree program, while Best
Buy is providing free shipping on its entire 400,000-SKU online
assortment through Dec. 27.
